Santa Maria

The Frames

Let me off of this boat

I'm sick of this ride

The world is heading ever southward

And I can't stay in here

And you're lying awake

Away on your side

The feeling comes in waves and burns us

And I don't wanna die

From the slippery hands

To the line of your throat

The fever now consumes us both

In a fire now we will go

Santa Maria

Why did you have to go?

Santa Maria

One day we will know

In a bowing of heads and a passing of hands

And all we thought they'd understand

Is lost and they won't know

And what have we left

It's all that we've got

There is no 'X' to mark our spot

What's past is done and gone

Santa Maria

Why did you have to burn?

Santa Maria

One day you will learn
